Become a 2016 Patron

September 8, 2015

Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends of JMU,

As yet another academic year begins, the staff of The Bluestone is beginning to prepare for another wonderful year of  providing the best possible record of life at James Madison University. Our yearbook is a historical publication dedicated to chronicling the diversity, uniqueness and enthusiasm of the 2016 student body and JMU community.

The Bluestone has been recognized for its outstanding achievements by the country’s top journalism associations, from the Associated Collegiate Press’ most prestigious Pacemaker to Silver and Gold Crown Awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. We are happy to announce that the 2014 edition of The Bluestone is currently a Pacemaker finalist.

The Bluestone staff and editorial board is committed to continuing this level of excellence, but we need financial support. So we turn to you, members of the JMU community. We rely on your support and contributions.

To show our appreciation and gratitude, the names of those who contribute $10 or more will be included in a section of the yearbook dedicated to our patrons. Those contributing $50 or more will be listed as Diamond Patrons, and those contributing $100 or more will be listed as Madison Patrons. In addition, those giving $75 or more will receive a copy of the 2016 edition of The Bluestone. As a reminder, current students may pick up a yearbook in May without donating.

If you do have a son or daughter (or nieces, nephews or grandchildren, for that matter!) at JMU, please remind them to attend our portrait dates this fall. If you have any questions, please email us at

Thank you very much for your continued support of The Bluestone and of James Madison University.


Paige Lobuts
Editor in Chief
